Discover State Forest State Park, CO


Colorado is rising in popularity among travelers and home-seekers alike. Find yourself camping at State Forest State Park in Walden for panoramic views of the western Medicine Bow Mountains and the northern Never Summer Range. Most famously known for moose, State Forest State Park is truly something special. With a whopping 71000 acres of a variety of terrain, you’re getting five-star views for the low cost of camping. Now that is something to write home about.

Moose are elusive creatures lurking deep in the forest depths. Seeing one is something of a rarity, especially if you’re from the city or suburbs. By booking an RV near State Forest State Park, you’ve just upped your chances significantly. Nicknamed the “moose viewing capital of Colorado,” this Jackson County expanse is home to well over 600 moose. Just remember to be respectful and keep your distance, as these massive creatures may look serene until they come charging at you full force.

Getting Outdoors

Upon first entering the park or after you’ve settled in at your campsite, be sure to swing by the Moose Visitor Center. Here you can speak with employees about what to expect within the park, pick up some maps, and have a look at some interactive displays. It’s a great starting point before you set out into the vast outdoors.

Set in picturesque Walden, State Forest State Park is a hiker’s paradise. There are 11 marked trails accessible when camping out in State Forest State Park. The trails range from 0.8-8 miles one-way, and you can find yourself scaling up to 2000 plus feet of elevation. Be sure you are physically capable of completing your trail of choice prior to setting out; the starting elevation might be a drastic difference from your state of residence.

Other than hitting the trails, there’s plenty else available to enjoy when booking a RV rental in State Forest State Park. Wakeless boating is allowed on the North Michigan Reservoir and fishing is permissible at most surrounding lakes. Mountain biking is permitted below the tree line on most trails. Of course, wildlife watching is encouraged. If you’d like a more guided experience, educational programs are available every weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Camping at State Forest State Park

Be sure to reserve your campsite in advance when looking to rent a camper near State Forest State Park. This is not a place you can mosey on up and expect vacancy. You will also need a daily park pass. But, once you have your reservation and pass, camping within the park is quite pleasurable.

There are five campgrounds and a bunch of primitive sites available. Some of the sites require 4WD and high clearance to get to so the park recommends double-checking your camper rental is able to reach your reserved spot without getting stuck. At the very minimum, with the exception of the primitive sites, all sites have vault toilets and water. Shower and laundry facilities are only available at the North Park Campground.

You will have all of State Forest State Park surrounding you. Take full advantage of the easy access trailheads, deer passing through, and just the general beauty of the natural world. It’ll be imprinted in your mind for years to come.

Exploring the Area

Walden’s main attraction is State Forest State Park. However, the small town does boast a nice selection of eateries and pubs. The local art scene is also something of note. For those who need a little retail therapy, there are a handful of shops to fill the need.

Walden sits up by the Wyoming border. Take your RV rental on a bit of an out-of-state excursion to make the most out of your trip. While there are no major cities reasonably distanced along the border, you’re sure to stumble into charming small towns that’ll give you a real feel for the area and the people. At the very least, it’ll make for a good story.

Though, if you’d prefer to stay within Colorado and don’t mind a bit of a drive, both Denver and Boulder are a three-hour drive from State Forest State Park. Denver embodies a more modern city vibe while Boulder holds onto the old-fashioned Rocky Mountain allure. Both cities are unique in their own rights and well worth the visit if you have time for one or both. Check out all the shops, restaurants, museums, and more that draw visitors to this area year round. You may even need to book another motorhome rental to Colorado to experience it all.
